Italian side AS Roma have identified Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek as a transfer target – according to Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport.
The 25-year-old has forced his way into Thomas Tuchel’s first team plans at Stamford Bridge this season with several impressive performances when given the chance.
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who is now Roma boss, is a keen admirer of Loftus-Cheek, who is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2024.
Roma reportedly eyed a loan move for Loftus-Cheek late in the summer transfer window and are preparing to make a move for the midfielder in January.
